Anuak Market

Top choice in Western Ethiopia

In Gambela's north is the Anuak market. Vendors sit in the shade of the trees selling cereals, firewood, large Nile perch and tobacco. To pass the time, many indulge in akowyo (water-pipe) smoking. You can taste the borde (traditional sorghum ‘beer’), served to thirsty marketgoers from metal buckets.
